Biography

Emile Daems

Emile Daems (born 4 April 1938) is a Belgian former professional road racing cyclist.

He began his professional career in 1959. Daems, rather small in stature, was very adept at sprinting.

In the 1962 Tour de France, he distinguished himself with three victories, first in Saint-Malo and then in Aix-en-Provence, each time solo. But it was especially during the mountainous 18th stage, between Juan-les-Pins and Briançon, that he impressed. Although he was mainly a classics rider, he managed to join the leading group on the col de l'Izoard (last climb of the day), twenty seconds behind Federico Bahamontes. He finally won in Briançon in a sprint of seven riders, ahead of Bahamontes, Jacques Anquetil, Raymond Poulidor and the yellow jersey Joseph Planckaert.
